Short video....most of the exciting stuff has been done on the body. So I'll try to keep what's left to short videos. When my brother makes it back down in a couple of months we will start the motor and hang sheet metal...that being said here is more progress.

Tim and I have been working away on the 1968 Triumph TR250 project the last couple of weeks. As the work that we have been doing doesn't make good video I have been a little lax in the updates. So I've made a short video of where the progress of the car is at. Hope you enjoy.

I'm down to the last major panel....the hood. The car either was caught in a squeeze play between two other cars or ran into something and then backed into another something later. Either way the hood had a lot of damage messing up the fit.

I am really pleased with how if is responding to my repair attempts.
Here is another short video of the progress.

Part 3 of the Hood repair. My brother has to leave a little sooner than we expected so this will be the last Triumph update for a while.
I am going to put the Cobra on the lift and pull the motor to see how much damage I have done.....At least that will make some interesting videos to post.

Hope you enjoy...

Ken,

I admit to being curious about the post-mortem of the Cobra engine: was the failure related to the broken electrode of the spark plug?
